Jews Blamed: Puerto Rico Relief Failures

18 01 2018

Dry Bones Puerto Rican Antisemitism

A column published by Puerto Rico’s most circulated newspaper said disaster relief decisions on the island are controlled “behind closed doors” by “the Jews.” Wilda Rodriguez, a columnist for San Juan’s El Nuevo Dia, writes in the piece “What does ‘the Jew’ want with the colony?” that “the Jews” are the “secret structure that rules the United States … behind closed doors.” Dry Bones

Top Puerto Rican Newspaper Blames ‘the Jew’ for Disaster Relief Failures –  “Only behind closed doors do the most elite politicians speak of the power of the American people as a parallel government organized by the forces of wealth and violence (the war machine) from Wall Street,” Rodriguez wrote. “It is not Congress. The Congress will in the end do what ‘the Jew’ wants.” The Washington Free Beacon

Puerto Rico’s largest newspaper removes anti-Semitic column from website – The El Nuevo Dia newspaper apologized late last week for publishing the January 8 column by Wilda Rodríguez titled “What does ‘the Jew’ want with the colony?” but never removed it from the website. Rodriguez also apologized in a statement on the website. “I deeply regret that my writing is interpreted as anti-Semitic … I apologize to those who in good faith have felt hurt by my political allusion,” she wrote, adding that she “can understand the psychic reaction of some to the mere use of the Jewish word. But the intention is not to provoke offense, but to contribute to public discussion.” Times of Israel

Did you notice that her “apology” was one of those that blames those who “interpreted” her remarks as anti-semitic? Remarks like those in her column are rampant in the Muslim world, but are rather shocking in a United States territory. Thankfully, the paper did eventually remove the column from its website. But, don’t be fooled. Anti-Semitism is alive and well in the hearts of many. Pray for a love of the truth.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.  2 Thessalonians 2:9-11

Pray for rain in Israel and for the peace of Jerusalem. (Big rain and snow storm this weekend!)
